    OK, let's hear it. This is for the official 10.0.1 release.

    I used iTunes, not OTA, and did not update -- I wiped my 6s and restored from iCloud, so I had a clean install.

    So far, I think it's eating a little more battery than iOS 9 (down to 54% at 8pm, from just before 10am). I would hazard that, last week, with the use I gave it today, I would have been in the mid to low-60's. Not too shabby, although I was on calls longer than usual. Will see tomorrow.

    I also have "Raise to Wake" and "Rest Finger to Open" enabled and a 1-minute screen timeout.

    Battery life on the official iOS 10.0.1 has been much better than the GM for me.

    Battery life seems better for me. Especially since I turned off "Share My Location" and swiped Facebook out of multitasking. I should get close to 8 hours usage. Not bad for a year old 6s Plus that's been used extremely heavy the past year.

    Well have you guys simply updated or restored as new ? If you haven't restored it as new then expect poor battery life for the first few days atleast.

    Yea, same here. I disabled mail push, raise to wake, bedtime, and all apps which uses location, yet, battery still drains faster than before. Me and my phone is clearly not ready for 10.

    So far so good here on my 6s. About the same as it was before, thankfully.

    Definitely worse for me, the same as all the iOS 10 beta builds (including the GM). I've just learned to live with it I guess for the features, and I'm guessing the widgets might have something to do with it. Ever since 9.3.3 I've gotten worse battery than I used to on my 6 so I've been so used to bad battery anyway now. In iOS 9 I used to come home with around 80%, now I come home with 60~ish or so....

    After the first few hours, my battery life stabilized, and I've had no further issues.

    Yeah... today I did well; took an hour before I got down to 99% -- at 98% about 3 hours later (I've barely used the phone... couple of texts, deleted an email, one quick 2 minute phone call).

    That's still not too bad... of course, I came from the Nexus 5 (not 5x), which had terrible battery life, so on the 6s I feel like it'll never run down!

    Yup -- my first day after install I still expected everything to be screwy (it kinda was)... and forget install day!

    The battery drain seems to be faster for me - trying to figure out the cause of this - raise to wake ? Widgets ?

    Been running GM since it dropped, and battery life has been worse than it was on the last iOS9 build. I might go to the "official" build to see if there's any improvement. So far...unimpressed.

    I haven't had time to test it. Been using the device for 7 hours now and haven't been out it aside for longer than 5 minutes .
    Frankly, I don't care about battery life. I have external chargers with me all the time.

    Battery life on my SE seems fine. Can't really tell if it's better or worse so it's probably the same

    It's the same build number. But, my battery life is much better on the official for whatever reason.

    It's because you restored. Most times that has a productive affect on battery life.

    Yeah, well, so far I'm doing pretty well. Yesterday I went down to 66% after 12 hours, most of which were on LTE on a typical-use day.

    Great battery life. I never swipe apps from Multitasking (they're in a suspended state, so do not eat battery during that time)... I allow the OS to operate as intended, and shared location is on.

    didn't know that. what procedure should I follow to not have a productive affect on battery life? Right now, I only have my phone backed up on itunes locally on my computer.

    I think he's implying you wiped your phone, installed the OS cleanly, then restored your settings and apps. If so, then an "unproductive" effect would be to do an OTA update from 9.x to 10 without a wipe.

    In theory, but not always in practice, an update can have detrimental effects on the device because of legacy components that stay in place.

    My main reasons for doing a wipe/install/restore were:
    1. I had the time.
    2. Were I to run into issues later, I could dismiss a number of concerns because nothing had been updated/upgraded.
    3. Updates typically take up more storage space than clean installs.
    4. After 15 years managing Windows, macOS, Solaris, Red Hat, Android, and yes, iOS, I found that a full wipe leaves the system more stable, thus avoiding potential issues down the road.

    Battery life sucks on mines. iPhone 6 Plus iOS 10.1. I deleted the GM profile cause my phone was laggy. But from 5am-6am I went from 100% to 90 % without touching my phone. So help ?
